HELP BRING A FREE WALK-IN MOVIE THEATER TO HAYES VALLEY!
posted on July 1st 2015 at 19:52 by

Do you like movies? And being outdoors? And supporting the local community? 

We know you like coffee, or you probably wouldn't be reading this. 

 

Well friends, you can revel in all this and more by supporting the Kickstarter funding drive to make a totally free walk-in outdoor movie screen in SF a reality!

 

The drive is being spearheaded by our friends at Proxy, where our shipping container coffee shop currently resides. The open air theater would be located at the corner of Hayes and Octavia, just a stone's throw from Ritual Coffee. 

 

Plus, we're upping the ante -- one of the prizes that Proxy is offering is the opportunity to learn how to roast specialty coffee at our Roastery, and then create your own specially packaged coffee for friends and loved ones!

 

"Roastmaster"- it's got a nice ring to it! 

 

Get the details here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1700939132/free-community-walk-in-movie-theater-in-san-franci

 

But don't delay, there's only two weeks left!!

Layet Johnson was born in 1985 in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he now lives and works. He received his M.F.A. from The University of Georgia in 2011.

Group exhibitions featuring Johnson’s work have included Perfect Lovers, a Frieze Special Project at White Box Art Center, New York (2012,) Bad as I Wanna Be at Ortega Y Gasset Projects, Brooklyn (2013,) and the inaugural exhibition at 21C Museum Hotel in Bentonville, Arkansas (2013.) In 2011, Johnson was named one of 15 “Artists to Watch” by Modern Painters Magazine. Johnson is the director of Outer Space, a social network-based gallery.
